September 10, 2020 is World Suicide Prevention Day

Suicide prevention day

Any loss of life offers a moment for reflection. A tragic and sudden loss of life impacts families and communities and can result in enduring pain that takes long to heal.

September 10, 2020 is World Suicide Prevention Day. It is a day of remembrance, a day of reflection, and opportunity to commit to awareness and to action in suicide prevention and in providing a forum for mental health professionals, crisis workers, suicide survivors and other people in one way or another affected by suicide.

Sadly this week, our own community suffered a loss of young life due to suicide. To the family and friends, who are suffering and trying to make sense of this tragedy we extend our sincere condolences. She will be in your hearts forever.

At this time, the City will continue to respect the family’s right to privacy as the investigation continues.

The City of Chestermere offers mental health support services and other related services through the Community Resource Centre which can be accessed in the link below.

Additional detailed information can also be found on our website here.

To all of Chestermere, let’s be reminded that all life is precious, and to help those struggling, remember that offering a helping hand, an attentive ear, a warm heart, and offers of kindness go a long way.

The community is encouraged to join the World Suicide Prevention Day Candle Light Vigil that is being hosted tomorrow (Sept. 10) at 7 p.m. by Alberta Health Services in John Peake Park. It is an opportunity to connect with others and learn about resources. COVID-safe practices are highly encouraged.

Peace and kindness to all.

Mayor Chalmers and all your City Councillors.
